Gosh… It has been a while since I wrote my last blog post, as all my time is spent working or travelling or doing both at the same time. So, this time I want talk to you about Michael. _More
It is so hard to get back to my normal routine, after spending two weeks in this breathtaking Paradise. Vilma, let’s put a brave face on! _More
…Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me…
This is what I found (by unknown artist) browsing on the internet today. Does anyone know what’s the time now?
Today I am trying to organise the threads I have got and did’t realise that there are so many of them! To simplify the things, I am arranging them by colour. And how should I choose the colour scheme for my new piece?

Last week I went to Pick Me Up Graphic Art Fair 2012, which is currently on in Somerset House. It was a very nice day out with a good reason to meet up with my two college friends: Alma and Lizzy. We have chosen Friday, as Lizzy and I wanted to attend Anthony Burrill‘s workshop, which was on that particular day.
I’m currently working on my new website which will be launched very soon. Please keep checking www.vilmajar.com for the announcements of the launch. I don’t know how I will manage to look after two web pages, but if you won’t try you won’t know. Here is a sneak preview on the things you will find there.
Last weekend Mindaugas and I went to Yayoi Kusama exhibition which is currently on in Tate Modern. Not mentioning 30min queuing up for a ticket (5 cashiers were open), we have managed to get it. Inside of the exhibition as we have expected was – crazy. I never seen so many ‘art thirsty’ people running around, as all 14 rooms were full. I would like to share with you my favourite pieces that I photographed using my best undercover photography skills.
I was randomly going through my old images on Flickr and found this cool shot taken in Barbican. It took me some time to remember what I was holding in my hand. And guess what is it? It is my FROG head cushion!
It is so nice to travel when somebody is waiting for you. My dad is temporarily working in Sweden, so we couldn’t miss a chance to go and see him, so 3 weeks ago, Mindaugas and I went to snow covered and freezing Sweden, which we found very exotic and extremely cold, as at that time when we left London we were enjoying +8C.
To celebrate Terence Conran’s 80th birthday, Design Museum invites people to the The Way We Live Now exhibition, that explores Terenc’s unique impact on contemporary life in Britain. Here are few snapshots from the opening evening. The exhibition runs from 16th November – 04 March 2012.
I think to most of us Nokia associates with nostalgia. First phone, first sms… Today Design Museum is opening its door and invites its visitor to a journey back and to a coming future. By the way , the first mass-market phone Nokia 1011 is celebrating its 20th anniversary! Happy birthday!
Few shots from the exhibition opening night + New Lumia 800 phone.
Last week one of the biggest design talks – Typo London 2011 Places was storming the capital of England. With the most impressive speakers list – it was a total temptation that was difficult to resist. Unfortunately, due to last minute change of plans, I’ve managed to see only 1 speaker – Morag Myerscough, who was as always – brilliant!
Last evening, small Text gallery based in WC1 was completely packed with people who came to the opening of Imaginary Menageries exhibition, where 19 designers from all around the world were exhibiting their tongue-twisting interpretations. It was very sweet to to watch and listen to people trying to read the tongue twisters in perfection, not just in English, but in Russian, Spanish and other languages as well.
This summer a lot of important changes have happened in my little world, so from now please look for me under the name of Vilma Vaiciule. Bye bye Jaruseviciute!

Wim Crouwel is called one of the leading graphic designers of the twentieth century, and I think, this name is given to him for a reason.
Last night we (the studio) went to the launch of Nokia Pure typeface at Tramshed, Rivington Street, where Morag Myerscough alongside other great designers, such as Alex Trouchet, Bond, Build, Cartlidge Levene, DesignStudio, HelloVon, Nokia Design, Non-Format, North, Practise, Value & Service & Z.A.K were exhibiting her installation of 20 PURE stools.
